Mounting The Rhino-Rack Steel Mesh Cargo Basket To Round Bar Roof Rack


will this adapter alloy me to mount he 59”X26” steel mesh basket to my Yakima round bar rack? Also I intend to mount the basket perpendicular to it’s design. In other words i will mount it as if the 26” dimension is the depth and the 59” dimension is the width. I am mounting it on the very front of my E 250 van. it seems to me the mesh of the basket are equal size squares so turning the basket 90 degree should not create an issue. Do you concur? Thanks,

To mount the Rhino-Rack Roof Cargo Basket for Aero-Style Crossbars - Steel Mesh # RLBM-U, to your round bars, you can use the Round/Square Crossbar Fit Kit for Rhino-Rack Steel Mesh Baskets, Steel Mesh Trays, and Alloy Trays, # MUBK.

Based on the design of this Cargo Basket, I don't see any reason why you can't mount it horizontally. it is welded at all crosspoints so orientation should not be an issue as strength won't be effected.
